Yes, you can paint p-lam (Formica). With the proper prep work.
No, it is not recomended.
To prep p-lam for paint you need to sand with 80 grit paper to remove the sheen. Then step up the paper to 120, then 220, remove all previous scratches. Everything must be sanded very well.
Now you need to paint with a high quality adheasive primer, Spraying is better than brushing. Let the primer dry for several days, if you can scratch it off then you are S.O.L., and need to start over or quit.
This is why it is not recomended.
As a commerical cabinet maker/finisher I do not recomend it.
This is why you don't get the answer you want to hear. YOU CAN'T GUARANTEE IT!
